Call today for assistance.

There are many uses for walls – some are used to keep people safe, while others were used to keep enemies and animals out. Some are used as a symbol, and some are used for its aesthetic appeal. General landscaping and urban planning benefits tremendously from retaining walls. City public gardens use them to separate vegetation from the unsafe concrete jungle. Large properties utilise them to guide guests and to deter those unwelcomed, and highways and railroads use them to keep pedestrians safe.

Retaining walls come in a variety of shapes, textures, materials and styles. Precast concrete retaining walls are among the most popular, and it’s easy to see why using post and panel retaining walls gives the following advantages:

  • Aesthetic appeal
  • Erosion control
  • Independently tested
  • Cost-effective and easy to install

1. Aesthetic Appeal

When people think of concrete, it’s not unusual for them to think of dull or monotonous grey on ordinary concrete that serves no visual beauty. Fortunately, we offer a wide variety of precast post & panel concrete retaining walls designed to suit any and every creative taste. Our walls are available in different colours, designs, consistencies to accommodate various tastes.

Wonder Walls offers the perfect retaining wall solution. The concrete composition and galvanised steel reinforced panels make them extremely strong. The steel is completely encased in the panel and there are no exposed ends; they can’t rot or corrode, and have a quality finish that is maintenance-free and lasts a lifetime. The post and panel retaining walls are easily marked to match other nearby landscaping items, including tiles, sculptures, and metalworking. The ardent gardener who wishes to feature both retaining walls and fences in their carefully crafted lawn layouts will come to the right place by contacting us.

2. Erosion Control

Many property owners fail to realise that erosion impedes more than just beaches and mountain slopes; erosion damages lawns and gardens too. Precast concrete retaining walls are one deterrent people use to kerb erosion.

The most common types of landscape erosion come from two sources: water and people walking on the lawn, and yet both can easily be prevented.

A precast concrete post & panel retaining wall can elevate your landscape into flat layers; thus keeping rainwater from moving which, in turn, diminishes erosion damage. Likewise, retaining walls are a great, yet subtle, way of telling people to avoid walking in certain areas. It keeps people out of sensitive areas protecting both the soil and the plant life.

Independently Tested
The concrete used in Wonder Walls panels and posts is regularly tested by an independent testing laboratory to ensure consistency of the design strength.
